He might have played a billionaire in Fifty Shades of Grey but Jamie Dornan was reportedly only paid €112,000 (Stg£80k) for his role in Fifty Shades of Grey.

When Charlie Hunnam dropped out of playing Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey, reportedly in part due to a low salary of $125,000, it opened the field for Irish star Jamie Dornan.

Dornan’s lack of box office clout meant a lower payday, said to be £80,000. Predictably, he’ll make considerably more for the sequels – Dornan will make €6.3m (£4.5m) for returning to the sequels.

The film has already grossed €500million at the worldwide box office.
